Glasgow Airport in Scotland has opened its new Lomond Lounge to passengers, built with a £1.6m ($1.7m) investment.
Inspired by the nearby Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the new facility has generated around 25 new jobs. It is located within the departures area and will be open between 5am and 9pm.
The 4,500ft2 lounge has 100 covers to provide privacy to passengers. Passengers are also offered a wide range of a la carte breakfast, lunch and dining options. The food is prepared by local chefs using Scottish produce.
The lounge has a separate suite dedicated for business travellers, which is equipped with charging outlets, high-speed WiFi and flight information displays.
Glasgow Airport managing director Mark Johnston said: “My team has worked incredibly hard to deliver this project and we are all immensely proud of the Lomond Lounge. I’ve got to say that although the initial design concept images looked impressive, they don’t do it justice when you see the completed lounge.
“Given its prime location in the airport’s departures area, the lounge offers fantastic views of both the airfield and the stunning backdrop of the Campsie Fells, while raising the benchmark by providing a premium level of service and comfort.
“It’s a beautiful space and I’m sure our customers are going to be very impressed with everything this luxurious new facility will offer.”
The new facility increases Glasgow Airport’s total lounges to four.
Emirates and British Airways also have dedicated facilities at the airport, while Glasgow Airport has operated the UpperDeck lounge for several years.
